MAYNARD, MA – JM Coull, along with TRO JB Architects, has completed work on the Veterans Administration (VA) Outpatient Clinic, located at Biotech Park on Plantation Street in Worcester, Mass. Owned by Worcester Campus Services, the property is adjacent to and shares services with the UMass Medical School campus. The two-stage project was a design-build fit-up for the new 13,000 sf clinic.
The new VA clinic is located on the third floor of Biotech 4 and offers audiology, podiatry, and optometry services to patients. The audiology suite includes three state-of-the-art sound booths, which required extensive coordination with all trades.
The design-build project comprises all interior finishes and new MEP systems, including plumbing, fire protection, HVAC, electrical, lighting, emergency call systems, security, and IT. A new 10 ft x 30 ft pedestrian canopy was also constructed at the main entrance.
“We’re proud to have worked with Worcester Campus Services and UMass Medical on this project,” says Project Manager Jami Anderson. “This is the first VA clinic JMC has done, and constructing a facility where veterans can receive the care and services they deserve is very gratifying. We have several veterans at JMC, so this project has been particularly meaningful for us.”
